Jeremy Clarkson’s well-publicized departure from BBC’s Top Gear has led to a lot of discussion about the future of the ever-popular motoring TV show. Now the BBC are set to show the last items that Clarkson filmed for the show in an as-yet unscheduled special one-off episode on BBC Two. BBC Two’s Twitter account released a trailer showing Clarkson with co-stars Richard Hammond and James May in a pair of ‘cheap car challenges’, featuring footage that was set to air on the programs, which were cancelled after Clarkson’s suspension. Hammond and May have reportedly returned to film studio footage for the all-new episode.
Clarkson’s BBC contract was not renewed earlier this year, following a suspension after a confrontation with Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon at a shooting location. Hammond and May are both rumoured to have been offered £1 million to continue with the show; however there is also talk that the BBC intend to continue the show with a new trio of presenters, and earlier reports of Chris Evans taking on the Top Gear position were later confirmed as unfounded.
